My August Birchbox Unboxing

I‘ve never done an unboxing style post before but when this months Birchbox landed on my doorstep I really felt the need to do a little post to tell you guys all about it…

The bods at Birchbox knows that deep down inside, each an everyone of their subscribers has a beauty junkie inside them screaming to get out and be indulged and that’s what this months box aims to do – satisfy the beauty junkie in us all.

Housed inside the cute, emoji inspired box and the traditional cloth Birchbox bag are six amazing little samples; Rituals Ayurveda Scrub, Lord & Berry Blusher, Huygens Exfoliating Cream, Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo, Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara and the Illamasqua Hydra Veil.

Now I must admit as I’m writing this I’ve only managed to try the Laura Mercier Mascara which is fantastic and does exactly as it claims – it gives the lashes amazing volume even after just one light coating and lasts fantastically throughout the day.

But the products in the box this month are all ones that I really want to try out; the Rituals Scrub uses micro beads and not sand to offer a softer scrub that will leave your skin glowing, the Lord & Berry Blusher is in a Lotus a shade that looks fairly universal, the Huygens exfoliant is rumoured to give you Beyonce’s skin in minutes without causing irritation and the Kebelo Shampoo is designed to be a once a month detox for your hair. Who doesn’t love a detox?

But the inclusion of the Illamasqua Hydra Veil made my heart skip a beat when I opened the box. I have seen vloggers use this for ages and I am so excited finally get the chance to try it out. I’ll let you all know when I do!

Have you got this months #beautyjunkie Birchbox? Let me know your thoughts below and I look forward to catching up with you again soon, until then though x
